IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING THE LIBRARY’S CHILDREN’S ROOM
Exciting changes are coming to the Children’s Room of your Kirkwood Public Library! In September, the Kirkwood Public Library announced the receipt of $725,000 in directed donations from donors to renovate the Children’s Library. The donors, the Earl E. and Myrtle E. Walker Foundation, and a generous benefactor, specifically earmarked their gifts to support the transformation of the current Children’s Library space.
In addition, the Edward Chase Garvey Foundation awarded the Library $8,000 in support of the project.
Construction will begin in early January and should be completed by Spring. While the Children’s Room is being renovated, the meeting room will serve as the temporary home for the Children’s Room. To complete the move, the Children’s room will be closed January 4th and 5th and reopen regular hours on the 6th.
All families are invited to a family-friendly laying of tracks ceremony on Saturday January 7th at 10 am to celebrate the groundbreaking of this project.
Storytimes will resume the week of January 10th and with the exception of Books for Babies, all storytimes will take place at the Library in the temporary space.
Preschool Storytimes are Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 10 am. 1st Steps Storytime is on Thursdays at 10:30 am.
On Thursdays at 9:30 am Books for Babies will take place at Webster Groves Christian Church, 1320 W Lockwood Ave, St. Louis, MO 63122, in the chapel.
Please contact the Library with any questions at 314-821-5770, ext. 1015.
